What with trouble at home between his parents and trouble with a bully at the Tyneside shipyard where he works, life is pretty bleak for fifteen-year-old Joe Darling. Then an unlikely friendship with an old rag-and-bone man, Mr. Prodhurst, leads him into the greatest challenge of his life. For Mr. Prodhurst bequeaths his peculiar-looking horse, The Gladiator, to Joe -- with only enough money for a couple of weeks feed!

How can Joe possibly look after the horse properly? He is determined to try. Otherwise, The Gladiator will have to be put down...

A tense and absorbing tale of one boy's courage and determination to succeed against all the odds.
